In that last picture his belly looks fine...a bit round perhaps, but not sickly bloated.
When I say round, I just mean maybe a bit overfed. Mine get round bellies after meals, but they go away...that's normal.
I didn't mean to alarm you..lol.

Add a day of fasting into your schedule and cut back a pellet per feed.

:)

It's super hard to take pics of them. They just don't 'sit' still!!! Yours weren't so bad.

Wow, great set up! I bet theyre happy as can be. I have nothing more to add, other than for future reference, try setting the camera to "macro" (flower setting) and do it that way. If you can, combine that setting with action shot!
And if moving, keep a bit ahead of em...they run out of space to swim and eventually turn around XD

You can do it! I dont think he's too badly off. Just a fast for a bit with the bloat and clean water'll make everything right as rain.

Thanks, girl's (I think your girl's..ha!)

It won't be from not trying. Did a complete water change w/ salt. Wanted to get all the med out just in case that was not agreeing with him. He swam around for awhile searching for his DINNER, now just laying under his rock. At least he isn't staying at the surface.
Have a great night!
Jill
